Colour under the water
A batch of 24 DV59 underwater dock lights manufactured by Underwater Lights USA is now installed at Port Adriano, Mallorca. A blue lighting option was selected to create special ambience at the Philippe Starck designed facility.
The DV59 is purpose-built for robust underwater use in both salt water and fresh water environments. It is manufactured in aluminum bronze and incorporates the latest LED high density chip technology with a borosilicate marine grade glass lens and GFCI protection.
The light can be mounted horizontally on any structure or can simply be placed on the seabed and the driver box can be ordered with an attached photo cell for automatic switching at dusk. An optional mounting bracket is also available to attach the light to fixed structures. Depending on the clarity of the water, the light beam can reach up to 30m (100 ft.).
The DV59 is available in blue, red, green and colour changing RGB, or as white light, 95 of which have recently been fitted at Papeete Marina in Tahiti.
